Warner Bros. has released an official trailer for House Party, an upcoming remake of the fan-favorite ’90s classic. Let’s take a look.
Mhm, interesting. I’ve never seen the original, but this looks like it could be… fine? I don’t know. This was originally planned as an HBO Max exclusive film before Warner Bros. Discovery CEO “Zazzy” got involved and made it a theatrical release. Was that the right call? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
House Party stars Tosin Cole, Jacob Latimore, Karen Obilom, and D.C. Young Fly, among others. Scott Mescudi, LeBron James, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Lena Waithe, and Anthony Davis will all cameo in the upcoming R-rated comedy as themselves.
Aspiring club promoters and best buds Damon (Tosin Cole) and Kevin (Jacob Latimore) are barely keeping things together. Out of money, down on their luck and about to lose the roofs over their heads—and freshly fired from their low-lift jobs as house cleaners—the pair needs a huge windfall to make their problems go away. In a ‘what the hell?’ move, they decide to host the party of the year at an exclusive mansion, the site of their last cleaning job, which just happens to belong to none other than LeBron James. No permission? No problem. What could go wrong?
How about a time traveling DJ, undependable security, a runaway guest list, one borrowed Lamborghini, angry rival promoters, a stolen championship ring, escalating property damage, an angry koala..? But also, one outrageous ride stacked with double-take cameos and timeless throwback tracks, R-rated comedy and two friends worth cheering for… you have to see to believe. After all, a night like this doesn’t come around more than once.
House Party opens in theaters on January 13, 2023.
